Depends on the horse - some of the youngsters that were started at the farm where I used to board/work overjumped everything, gound poles, ditches, regular jumps... didn't matter.
Other horses had a "this is easy and I don't care" attitude and put in what seems like minimal effort, even though they're young - they get the hang of actually jumping with time though.
How old is she? Are you trotting up or cantering, then she breaks into the trot?
Just keep practicing :)
